“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas Edison
The man who first interested me in becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Joe Anglitner, always said, “Life is like a candle. It should burn brightly from beginning to end, flicker once, and go out.” My purpose is to help my clients achieve that ultimate goal.
I graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1980 and worked for the Shaw Clinic in Quincy, Illinois until 1985. That's when I opened Northport Chiropractic Centre in Hannibal, Missouri, where I have been offering healthcare services ever since. I received my certification to practice acupuncture (meridian therapy) in 1987. I enjoy working with a wide range of patients, including those interested in relieving pain, as well as those who wish to build and maintain health naturally.

We at Northport Chiropractic and Natural Healthcare Centre share this vision of a conservative approach to health care by offering patients an alternative to drugs and surgery. While we feel that modern medicine has its place, we recognize the chiropractic philosophy that the power that created the body can heal the body as long as there is no interference. We specialize in removing interference in the nervous system through the application of chiropractic procedures, as well as in the energy system through acupuncture. We also recognize that proper nourishment of the body plays a vital role in resolving the degenerative processes thereby building health.
The nervous system controls every cell of your body. Nerve impulses flow from the brain down the spinal cord, and to every organ and tissue. Impulses sent back to the brain confirm that the body is working as it should. The moving bones of the spine can interfere with this exchange. Choked or irritated nerves can degrade or distort the messages. This is called the vertebral subluxation complex (see box). Without proper nervous system control and monitoring, ill health results. Chiropractic can help restore the integrity of the nervous system. This has helped people with a variety of health problems avoid drugs and surgery. Our methods are designed to resolve the underlying causes of your symptoms and to promote the restoration of your health.
